Elite 20kg Olympic Barbell
This bar features a mild knurling at the centre and a moderate knurling for the grip. At the centre, the knurling is mild to allow for some grip in the back squat and front squat. The idea is for your body to be able to identify the bar is sitting correctly in the centre of your upper back for the back squat or the neck for your front squat or cleans that it is anchored precisely. It is not so aggressive that it will cause skin tears at the area, but just right for that grip.
A word of caution about bars that are too cheap. Overall, bars do not break. Usually, they bend so much during a heavy squat and they never bend back to become straight. Then the bar is condemned after 6 months of use. In the off-chance that you use a cheap bar long enough, they do break as cheaper metal is used in their construction. And when it breaks, it probably will not be sitting in the rack. It is really not worth it to get a cheap bar.
You can buy from us with confidence because we state our specifications clearly. We know exactly what type of metal, bushings, bearings that is inside this barbell as we are personally interested in making a high quality and affordable barbell for the masses. Other sellers will just buy the cheapest barbell from the factory with poor quality materials and sell for a seemingly cheaper price in Singapore. This is not who we are, or are interested in becoming.
What you pay would be what you get, and buying a good quality bar is a investment you should not scrimp on, especially if you are in the iron game for long. We invite you to do a comparison with other bar suppliers based on quality by visiting our showroom to test it for yourself.
With the right use, our barbells will be able to last for a pretty long time. However, wrong use would quickly decimate even the best bars. Wrong use would be dropping the bar from hip / shoulder height using non-bumper plates from cast irons or rubber coated weight plates. These weight plates have no shock absorbing abilities and would transfer the shock and damage the needle bearings in the barbell, hence causing the spin in the bars to stop being smooth. If you would like to drop the barbell from hip height after a deadlift, we recommend using mainly bumper plates, and using some cast iron plates at the end... or better yet, don't drop the bar unless you have no choice.
